Celebrating 50 years of GNSS:
Navigating the next 50

It is a great pleasure to invite you to attend the 2024 IGNSS Conference
taking place at UNSW Sydney on 7 - 9 February 2024.

2023 saw the 50th Anniversary of the approval of the Global Positioning System (GPS) program by the U.S. Department of Defense. In the 50 years since Brad Parkinson and his team designed and built that revolutionary system, GPS has been joined by 3 other Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and 2 Regional Systems. Modern society is now heavily reliant on the Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) services that GNSS and other cutting-edge technologies provide. IGNSS2024 will open the next 50-year chapter of PNT, by bringing together experts, policy makers and emerging leaders in GNSS technology, products, and services to examine the latest advances, present cutting edge research and discuss policy, market development and infrastructure. IGNSS2024 will also showcase the Southern Positioning Augmentation Network (SouthPAN) and other important developments by Governments in the region. There will of course also be updates from the major GNSS System Providers. 50 years since GPS kicked off the PNT revolution, we are realising that our reliance on this important technology has also made us vulnerable to the risks, including the increasing threats in jamming, spoofing and cybersecurity. So IGNSS2024 will enable like-minded professionals to gather in technical sessions and on the much-loved IGNSS Sydney Harbour Cruise, to discuss the many interesting and challenging issues affecting the future of PNT. Sessions covered at IGNSS2024 will include: - Autonomy on land, air, sea and in space - Aviation and Avionics - Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems - Machine Guidance Applications in Agriculture, Construction and Mining - Maritime Applications - Unmanned Aerial Systems - Space applications of PNT in Earth orbit and for Lunar and Martian exploration - Positioning Infrastructure - GNSS Vulnerability, Resilience and Risk - Interference Detection and Mitigation - Policies and Standards - SBAS and Other Augmentations - Datums and Geodesy - National and International GNSS Developments - Emerging Application Areas for GNSS - Key Industries and their Reliance on GNSS - Embracing the Multi-GNSS Era - Cyber Security in PNT Applications and Infrastructure - Alternative PNT - State of the art in PNT algorithms and software development - GNSS Aiding and Sensor Fusion - Positioning in GNSS Denied Environments - Development of GNSS Receiver Hardware and Firmware - Precise position using Smartphones We encourage Early Career Researchers as well as Industry R&D to present their work.

We invite presentations that highlight the novelty of new technolgies, and provide R&D insight. We also encourage presentations that discuss interesting methodologies or applications.

Your abstract should provide a brief description of the content you plan to present, bearing in mind that this information will be published in the online conference program.

We suggest that industry presentations attempt to go beyond a simple sales pitch. If the Conference Technical Chair feels that your abstract leans too far in this direction, an amendment may be requested or you may be directed to consider a sponsorship package that includes time in the Sponsor Spotlight session.


Industry presenters may wish to consider bundling their registrations into a sponsorship package, which will include advertising perks as well as registrations. It may even save you money! Please check the sponsorships page for more details. Industry presenters who are not participating under a sponsorship package will need to register at speaker rates, and any accompanying colleagues should register at normal rates.

Paper Submission Guide

Remote Sensing Special Issue:
"GNSS Positioning, Navigation, and Timing—Present and Beyond"

A special issue of Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292).
This special issue belongs to the section "Engineering Remote Sensing".

We are please to announce a collaboration with MDPI's Remote Sensing journal in relation to both reviewing and publication of papers presented at IGNSS2024. 

This Special Issue aims to explore the latest developments and research in the multidisciplinary field of GNSS PNT. By showcasing cutting-edge advancements, innovations, and studies, this Issue seeks to showcase the significance of GNSS PNT and its diverse applications. The aim is to foster a deeper understanding of the potential and challenges associated with GNSS PNT technologies and their impact on various domains.

This Special Issue aligns perfectly with the scope of the journal Remote Sensing, which focuses on the publication of high-quality research in the field of GNSS PNT and related areas.

  • An option will remain to submit a paper for inclusion in the un-reviewed conference proceedings after a brief vetting process, however no detailed feedback will be available.

  • ​Papers for inclusion in the un-reviewed proceedings will be after the conference, tentatively in mid February 2023. Details on format and the submission process will follow in due course.

  • ​​For anyone seeking formal review and publication of their paper, referal to a variety open-access online journals will be available, though these services often come with additional fees. Since 2013 the Australian Research Council has implemented an Open Access Policy We advise you check whether your university or funding source has existing partnerships or allocated funds accessible for this purpose.
